We live in times of abundant narcissism, that’s where the idea for the 3D scene „Planet Smiling Selfie“ came from. The code was provided by the educators of the online course 3D Graphics for Web Developers.
I replaced earth’s map with a giant self-made smiley but left earth’s specular map & clouds. Then I created an animated brush for GIMP and painted the starfield with a lot of smileys. Sounds easy enough 😉
